Is it ok if I take 500iu of vitamin d and 600 calcium cabonate? Because after a week I have taken it my bone and wrist was very hurt like fracture.
JumpingToConclusions: Compared to the fantastic complexity of the vehicle (body) we are driving, 2 molecules, cholecalciferol ; calcium carbonate, are definitely not in charge but only a tool (vitamin) ; building block which our bodies can/may use over time with whatever outcomes. Primary body control is within, not from just a few molecules from without, even after ingested. ...Read more

Wrist has been swollen for 3 days. Pain on day 1 starting @ pinky & going down wrist. @ times it feels like a knife running down my wrist bone.
Wrist swelling: Wrist swelling in absence of acute injury is consistent with arthritis. The little finger involvement is unusual but the nerve could be impinged or one of its joints could also be inflamed. Apply cold applications and, if you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve should reduce swelling and inflammation.

Name of bones in wrist bone under middle figer at end of thum in wrist sticking out could it be broke and what is its name can you help me please thank you
"could it be broke". Did you fall or otherwise have a high-energy injury? If not then, no it cannot be broken.
If it feels broken, that is probably a misinterpretation of the pain. Pain always triggers and sets off our "safety system", making us feels protective and causing us to prepare for the worst ("it feels broken").
It's interesting that you want a name. Humans crave control and I assume you feel that if you could name the painful bone that you could feel a soothing sense of control.
I suggest that a visit to a hand surgeon is in order. He or she will likely tell you several things you are not expecting to hear. Even though most or all of them will be good news, just the fact that they are unexpected or counter-intuitive can make them a little unwelcome, so prepare yourself. Be ready for the "safety system" to have called "fire" when there is just smoke. Be prepared for something you find convincing ("it's broke") to be incorrect. ...Read more

Wrist bone contusion plus torn wrist cartilage tfcc. X ray shows my injuried wrist bones too close to each other. What can I do?
Most doctors do not believe, but we actually grow new cartilage in every joint in our body, every minute of every day. You need to wear out more slowly, and grow cartilage more quickly. Glucosamine works, but for the wrist needs to be given through skin by cream, or by injection. Oral pills do not work except for knees.

Age 14 son had left wrist bone age xray. Results state his bone age is 17 but do not state that growth plates are closed. Any hope for further growth?
Yes: The major mechanical determinant of height is how long the longest bones in the body, like the femur (thigh) and tibia (leg), become. At the ends of these bones are the growth plates that appear like open spaces on x-rays when growth is ongoing but close when growth is completed. If the growth plate on your son is still open, there is potential for further growth. ...Read more
